Phonolog Reports – New Releases

Week of June 21, 1971

Caught my eye:

VARIOUS ARTISTS – Motown Chartbusters Vol. 4 (Motown 732)

Not much in the way of major LP releases this week.  I have other volumes in the Motown Chartbusters series – but not this one.  I bet it’s pretty good.  The sound on these Motown albums was quite good.

Also of interest:

HERB ALPERT & THE TIJUANA BRASS – Summertime (A&M SP-4314) (LP)

MARVIN GAYE – What’s Going On (Tamla 310)

THE RAIDERS – Indian Reservation (Columbia C 30768)

SKILLET & LEROY – Dynamite (Laff 151)

My parents had given up on Herb Alpert by this time – the TJB’s time had passed.  Notable soul release from Marvin Gaye; social conscience material from The Raiders and smutty humor from Skillet & Leroy (so that’s when this originally came out!)

Notable singles:

BEE GEES – How Can You Men A Broken Heart? (Atco 6824)

BOB DYLAN – Watching The River Flow b/w Spanish Is The Loving Tongue (Columbia 4-45409)

IAN MATTHEWS – Hearts b/w If You Saw Thro’ My Eyes (Vertigo 101)

TOMMY NORTHCOTT – Suzanne b/w Spaceship Races (Uni 5288)

ROLLING STONES – Wild Horses b/w Sway (Rolling Stones 19101)

Decent AM radio hits from the Bee Gees, Bob Dylan and The Rolling Stones (a “Sticky Fingers” 45!).  I liked the Ian Matthews LP (and this is the debut US Vertigo 45!), and I remember when Tommy Northcott was signed to Warner Brothers, making ‘soft rock’ – this must be a cover of the Leonard Cohen song!
